A great 1st half save, followed by some classic sweeper goalie play in the 2nd half were highlights, all-round a very solid performance
Didn’t put a foot wrong. Overlapping didn’t get going with Lennon, but as usual Walker was active both ends of the pitch. Should get much more credit than he does
A first half missed lunge could have been more expensive that it was, he went to ground a couple of times, but on the whole a very solid performance. Superior in the air something neither Jan or Chiriches have to offer
Quietly effective purring like a Rolls Royce great to see him back in the team. Talked throughout the game organising the defence, settled everyone around him
Put a cross in for Adebayor that should have lead to a 1st half goal. You never saw BAE do that. A decent performance against an impressive Coleman. How he gets more criticism than Chiriches amazes me
Didn’t really get going. Was OK. His space in the 1st eleven can’t be certain. Switching wings a couple of times was the most interesting thing he did all afternoon
Played alongside Bentaleb with Dembele pushed further up. Again didn’t really get going, had one decent run with the ball otherwise an average performance. Games like this make you think what is best position is.
Got pushed around by Barry and McCarthy for the 1st half, his passing radar was off to. He forced himself into the game as it went on and looked a threat. Didn’t fully exploit his position further up the pitch, but his ability to receive and keep the ball in almost any situation continues to be a great asset for the team
Didn’t put a foot wrong again and like Dembele grew into the game. Could be a fantastic find for Spurs in the years ahead. I’d love to know what position he favours playing?
He didn’t carry his good recent form into this game. Playing mainly on the left side he struggled to get into the game. Interesting to see if he plays more games behind Ade in matches to come. An ineffective day for him
Easily the man of the match. Had he been playing for Everton they would probably have won. Missed a great chance from a Rose run and cross then redeemed himself with a well taken drive at the near post. He worked tirelessly all match and won a number of aerial duels, must have covered more ground than anyone else on the pitch. If he can keep this form up Tottenham will be in the fight for fourth right to the death.
